March 21st and 22nd sees the return of the Netier National Capital Rally for its 8th year in Canberra, as Round One of the RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship.
Australia’s best rally drivers will descend on Canberra to tackle 120kms of competitive stages in and around the Tidbinbilla forest.
Rally action starts on Saturday afternoon with the Kowen Rally Village opening at 3pm in Kowen Forest. “The new calendar position for Canberra of round 1 has allowed us to make use of the warmer weather” said Event Director, Adrian Dudok. “Expect plenty of free fun for the family with jumping castle, face painting, DJ, Pop up bar, food, rally show and much more.”
Get up close to the cars on Saturday at the official rally start, see the cars on display, or get an autograph from your favourite driver. Grab a beer and something to eat whilst watching
the cars negotiate jumps, tunnels and tight corners in a natural amphitheatre.
At today’s event launch, local Canberran and defending Australian Rally Champion Harry Bates said, “I’m excited to start our title defence and the 2020 season on home soil.”
With 2 dedicated spectator points on Sunday, and the Woden service park, there is plenty of action to be seen over the weekend.
“The entry list is looking amazing with what I believe is the best quality field of drivers the ARC has seen for a long time” commented Adrian Dudok. The event also forms round one of the MTA NSW Rally State Championship and East Coast Classic Series.
